Celebrating The Howard Years at Lewis & Clark: 1960-1981

February 06, 2014

On November 1, 2013, Lewis & Clark hosted a special event honoring the legacy of President John R. “Jack” Howard.

Howard served as president from 1960 to 1981, one of the most socially and politically tumultuous eras in American history. He was a champion of academic freedom and free speech and invigorated campus life with a roster of compelling speakers, including Ayn Rand, Eric Hoffer, Norman Mailer, Gloria Steinem, and many others. That commitment to lively give-and-take, both inside and outside the classroom, continues to this day.
